Today in Christian History – March 1

1546 – George Wishart, who had preached reform, is burned at the stake for “heresy” in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Wishart’s preaching in 1544–45 helped popularize the teachings of Calvin and Zwingli in Scotland. He translated into English the first Helvetic Confession of Faith in 1536. At his trial he refused to accept that confession was a sacrament, denied free will, recognized the priesthood of all believing Christians, and rejected the notion that the infinite God could be „comprehended in one place” between „the priest’s hands”. He proclaimed that the true Church was where the Word of God was faithfully preached and the two dominical sacraments rightly administered.
